When it's old, it is OLD!

This 100 year old hotel shows its age. Outdated lobby has the old musty smell. The room is average size, but you can not control the air conditioning. It was warmer than I like it. No spare electrical outlets, had to unplug the refrigerator. The outlets are old, and would not hold the weight of my charger plug. Had to tie it to the lamp cord to hold it in the socket. Beds were nothing special. Bath towels were the quality of an inexpensive hotel. Old style small cake of soap, and NO SHAMPOO! The only good thing was the location. Walk to everywhere.

Better than Expected

Expected worse so pleasantly surprised. Staff very friendly and helpful when i got in late and room threadbare but absolutely clean. True some challenges: no outlets save the one that already had light and fridge (so unplugged fridge), no shampoo, no fitness center (one across street for a fee), but for $175 a night and locale, pretty awesome.

Good location bad not much else

The location is great, walking distance to all the major sites to see in the area but the room is dinky. Everything felt cheap, unclean, and not well maintained. Definitely not what you expect for that much money even with the location. Wallpaper peeling etc.

Great location, but pretty run-down hotel

This hotel is very centrally located, and the lowest price in the area, however you get what you pay for (or don't pay for). The rooms were small and run down. There is a cafe attached as well as a bar, so food is accessible at almost any time. However the bar is noisy when you walk into the lobby since it is attached. Perhaps I just haven't stayed in many 2 star hotels, but this place was pretty run-down in general. That being said, everything was functional.

Budget travel

Reserved for 3 people, two beds and got exactly that. Nice surprise was the second full bathroom in the connected rooms. Quiet enough in the night. Not great air-conditioning, but the weather was cool enough anyway. Close to all relevant sights and plenty of restaurants nearby. The hotel provided a list of restaurants and other useful locations like pharmacies.

Business Stay

Stayed in small queen room. Really the only thing to rave about was location; everything else was just average. I requested something reasonable from housekeeping and was never followed up with, but staff was friendly enough.

Definitely budget

This hotel was about $200 less than other hotels in the area, and there is a reason why. Nothing was disgusting, but the linens, carpet, and fixtures had not been updated or replaced in decades. Bring your own shampoo.

Second-Rate Hotel in Excellent Location

Only 1 block from Pennsylvania Ave this hotel is in an excellent location, but it's run down. The bed was sagging (a little) and the closet was not usable. The advertised WiFi doesn't work in the rooms, only in the lobby. But the price is good, and they gave me an extra 10% off when I mentioned AARP at check-in.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Oyamel is a spectacular restaurant. If I lived in DC I would eat there at least once a month. (and more often if I could afford it.)
